Bottom positioned element is lifted together with keyboard on Android


I’m trying to put a div at the bottom of ion-view (outside of <ion-content>) but it’s not working on Android - the div is rendered above the keyboard (see screenshot below).

After some debugging I found that the height of ion-view is reduced to available space when keyboard opens, but on iOS it doesn’t.

Here is an example:

    <input type="text" placeholder="type something here...">

  <div class="bottom-stuff">Should be under keyboard</div>

    input {
      height: 40px;
      width: 200px;

    .bottom-stuff {
      position: absolute;
      bottom: 0;


Ionic version: 1.3.1
Ionic info:

Cordova CLI: 6.4.0
Ionic CLI Version: 2.1.18
Ionic App Lib Version: 2.1.9
ios-deploy version: 1.9.0
ios-sim version: 5.0.13
OS: macOS Sierra
Node Version: v7.3.0
Xcode version: Xcode 8.2.1 Build version 8C1002

Couldn’t it just be inside the ‘ion-content’?

If it’s not at the bottom you can make a script to calculate the screen size and add an offset height to the ‘ion-content’.

Hi sergeyz,

You can put the text within ion-content and Use the Css styling to positioned.
Hope this will help!

Happy Holidays! :slight_smile:
